1 GODS IN COLOUR Painted Sculpture of Classical Antiquity November 13, March 17, 2013 Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities An exhibition by the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna in collaboration with the Stiftung Archäologie, Munich, and the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung, Frankfurt am Main Gleaming white marble and limestone sculptures dominate our image of the Mediterranean world in classical antiquity. Fascinated by the aura of the purity of the material, we focus solely on form. However, we know that ancient architecture and sculptures were once painted in vivid colours ancient authors write about it and archaeologists have found traces on works uncovered in Greece and Italy since the early 19 th century, the onset of modern archaeology. The exhibition Gods in Colour focuses on the sometimes surprisingly vivid original colouring of ancient sculptures. Initiated by Vinzenz and Raimund Wünsche, this internationally noted travelling-exhibition was first shown at the Glyptothek in Munich in Continually updated, it has since been shown at numerous European and non- European museums. The result of decades of research is presented in the form of painted casts and copies of the examined originals; only natural pigments produced according to ancient recipes have been used. These didactic models are made of plaster or cast marble and will be displayed in the galleries of the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities, forming a fascinating foil for the ancient statues of the permanent collection and inviting visitors to see the latter with new eyes. Different versions of a statue (i.e. featuring different possible colour schemes) illustrate the problems inherent in reconstructing the original paint, and invite visitors to use their critical faculties. On show are, for example, archaic statues from the late 6 th century, a model of the west pediment of the Temple of Aphaia at Aegina (c. 480 BC) and a reconstruction of the celebrated Alexander sarcophagus (today in the Archaeological Museum in Istanbul).

2 In addition to Greek works the show comprises examples from the Roman Empire and late Antiquity. One of the highlights is a new model of the Chios Kore one of the charming statues of young women (korai) discovered on the Acropolis in Athens in the late 19 th century and noteworthy for its exceptionally vivid extant polychromy. The models and casts on show here come from the holdings of the Stiftung Archaeologie in Munich and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, Leibniz Prize project Oliver Primavesi). The exhibition also includes two loans from the University of Göttingen: copies of a portrait head of Emperor Caligula and a porphyry portrait from late Antiquity. In addition, original objects (stone or terracotta) featuring remainders of paint in the permanent collection of the KHM s Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities are identified and highlighted.
